Attribute Assistant Autonumber Method

In this discussion a couple of ideas were tossed around,  and Jake Skinner suggested using the AUTONUMBER method to sequentially increase a unique ID.


I just gave this method a try for the first time and it does not seem to work for me.  I would like to deploy this method on the MASTER STREET NAME table within the LGIM and right now I'm working with a small test set of records.  Prior to adding this method to the DyanmicValue table , I added a new field of long int type, calling it MASTERSTREETS_ID and calculating all the existing records to equal the OID, just to establish the numbering sequence.  I then added a new record to the DynamicValue using the AUTONUMBER value method, setting the On Create field to TRUE and the On Change to false.  According to

there is no Value Info needed, so I left it <NULL>.


However, when I add a new record, I get a value of 1 in the MASTERSTREETS_ID field.  Not what I was hoping to get. I must be missing something but not sure what....
